Jihadists control all main Syria oilfields: NGO

A file image made available by the jihadist Twitter account Al-Baraka news on June 9, 2014 allegedly shows Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants waving the trademark Jihadits flag as vehicles drive through the Syrian-Iraqi borderThe jihadist Islamic State (IS) now fully controls all of Syria’s main oil and gas fields in Deir Ezzor province bordering Iraq, a monitoring group said on Friday. The IS has declared an “Islamic caliphate” in areas it controls in Syria and Iraq, where it is spearheading an offensive against government forces. “IS took control of the Tanak oilfield, located in the Sheiytat desert area in the east of Deir Ezzor province,” late on Thursday after rival rebels withdrew, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. They have still not captured the tiny Al-Ward field, which produces barely 200 barrels of oil per day and is in the hands of a local tribe, Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman said.
